You might not have remembered – due to the nondescript nature of these products – that Acer announced the Liquid Jade smartphone and the Liquid Leap wearable at this year’s Computex trade show. You can be forgiven for that, but it has not slipped our attentions that Acer has already made improvements to the smartphone, announcing an Acer Liquid Jade Plus device.

The Acer Liquid Jade Plus sports a number of upgrades from the earlier device, notably that the Liquid Jade Plus will have 2GB of RAM from the earlier 1GB RAM configuration of the Liquid Jade. The improved version also has more internal storage, with 16GB rather than the 8GB of the earlier version.

Other than that, both smartphones offer identical specs. There is a 5-inch 1280×720 HD resolution display, and this is powered by a quad-core 1.3GHz MediaTek processor. The phones retain dual SIM capabilities, 13MP/2MP rear/front camera combo, and a 2100mAh battery. All of this will run on Android 4.4 KitKat.

This new device is now expected to partner with the Liquid Leap wearable, whereas it was the earlier version that was touted to launch in August in tandem with the wearable device. Nothing is clear as to whether the earlier version will even continue to be marketed, but the target release of the devices will be in August, with particular attention to the European market. The retail price is expected to be at €279 euros (around USD$375).
